  • Can't pass objects around more than once.

    Okay, it's been doing this since the new version of the parser was put in, and it's really starting to annoy me. Essentially, I can't seem to pass it to someone else after it's been passed once. The second time, I get this response:

    You are already offering a (insert object here) to Arian.

    Implying that I'm not Arian. (Which might be possible, I'm not sure.)

    Anyway, I really would like to see this bug get fixed. Thanks.

    Fixed. Sorry about the accept/offer stuff -- there have been a number of things wrong with it. I think everything should work fine now.

        Are you certain? Earlier today I could duplicate all the bugs I've been told about and I fixed all those, so you're doing something else. Can you tell me? Or does 'shrug' mean you don't care?

          I don't think the problem has gone away. In addition, even if an object has been given to you, once the person who gave you the object has gone to do something else (left, tried to offer something else), the parser tells you that that person has 'revoked' an offering of such and such.

          It's almost of the case where the left hand of the parser doesn't know what the right hand of the parser is doing. (A frequent problem with my piano performances.)

            Sorry!



            To be more helpful...

            We were offering scrolls.

            Once, between Gretchan and Chorus, four scrolls were offered. When Chorus did an accept, only one was taken; the others were being 'offered to Gretchan.'

            (Or vice-versa. Same case, different passing direction.)

            Then we went to a different room.

            I offered three scrolls to Chorus.

            She accepted them, and she got them all -- as well as a scroll that spontaneously leapt out of her pouch? :: BLINK! ::

              Just tried to offer a brand-new, just-written on scroll to Destini.

              System wouldn't let her take it.

                Avaria just tried to give me a scroll that I was able to successfully hand to her.

                OOC -- Avaria logs the bug, "Okay, I've heard of husband
                and wife being one, but I should at least be able to offer
                things to Gareth without getting ''You are already offering
                a scroll to Avaria.'' in return. "

                This is the common symptom of the bug. You try to offer something to someone else, and it thinks you are offering it to yourself already.

                ??

                ----

                Also, then she just 'put scroll on Gareth'.

                I accepted the scroll. It should ordinarily then treat the just-accepted scroll as the 'first scroll' in my inventory. Instead, the just-taken scroll became the *second* scroll in my inventory. Wierd!

                ------

                Then, another scroll Avaria handed to me. I accepted. Then I tried to hand it back. It said I was already offering it to me.

                This is a common problem.

                -Pete.

                  *groan* I had missed one of the upgrades. OK, now it really ought to work. So sorry.

                  The first/second thing is a different matter, and I'm going to go post a note about that now.
